Your Body Hears Every Word You Say!

“Our words, thoughts, beliefs affect our bodies, and our health.”

“If your thoughts are unhealthy, you cannot have a well body. We cannot chop into pieces the trifecta of mind, body, spirit.”

“A big difference exists between “health care” and “sick care,” which is what western medicine is turning into.”

Today’s guest asserts that what we say and think affects how we look and feel. Are you ready to hear the latest on the mind-body link? Are you also aware that the “latest” has its origins in beliefs from 1000’s of years ago? Natural, or alternative health is big and getting bigger. What’s in it for you? And is any of this oohee-whoeeee stuff provable?

What does “alternative” health care really mean anyway? What can you do TODAY to benefit from listening in?

Dr. Kathy Gruver, today’s guest brings an academic AND practical perspective to our show, where she confesses to having once been a skeptic of alternative wellness, to devoting her career to its study and practice.
